Sitka Alaska Native Brotherhood & Sisterhood Endorse Scott
Democratic U.S. Senate Candidate Scott McAdams has embraced a recent endorsement by Alaska Native Brotherhood (ANB) Camp 1 and Alaska Native Sisterhood (ANS) Camp 4. Scott is proud to receive the endorsement of those most familiar with his record as the Mayor of the City and Borough of Sitka and as a local leader.
“Scott is someone we know and we have worked with. Following a lengthy discussion of all three candidates we unanimously endorsed Scott because of his strong working relationship with the Alaska Native Brotherhood Sitka Camp 1 and his record as mayor. We are confident he would carry this record over as a U.S. Senator,” Gerry Hope President of ANB Sitka Camp 1.
“Sitka has seen Scott’s leadership first as a member of the school board and then as a successful Mayor. As someone who has known Scott for years I believe his unique background working with our schools and on our fishing boats make him an Alaskan ready to serve our state,” said Isabella Brady President of ANS Sitka Camp 4.
These endorsements come after Scott spent two days at the Alaska Federation of Natives 2010 Convention where he kept his promise of shaking 1,000 hands.
“Over the past few months I have been overcome by the support Alaskans across the state have given my campaign,” Scott McAdams said. “After traveling from Ketchikan to Nome it means an incredible amount to receive the support of those who know my record best. It was an honor to serve the people of Sitka as their mayor and I look forward to representing them and all Alaskans in the U.S. Senate.”
Scott is proud to have the overwhelming support of Sitkans and maintains his belief that this senate campaign should be a conversation between Alaska’s 300 communities.
Today, Scott’s campaign responded to a new ad from Senator Murkowski, which attempts to undermine Scott’s record in Sitka.
“Senator Murkowski’s most recent advertisement further proves that her campaign remains in TV studios and YouTube videos while Scott’s campaign is vested with Alaskans,” said McAdams Campaign Spokesperson Heather Handyside. “Senator Murkowski clearly intends to avoid the issues so she won’t alienate moderate voters with her conservative record.”
